Diversity in the Neuronal Machine: Order and Variability in Interneuronal Microcircuits

Ivan Soltesz


This book travels a colorful journey into the fascinatingly diverse world of interneurons, an important class of highly heterogeneous cells found in all cortical neuronal networks. Interneurons are known to play key roles in many brain functions, from sensory processing to neuronal oscillations linked to learning and memory. This book aims to provide new insights into the striking degree of cellular diversity found in interneuronal microcircuits. The book discusses the history of research into interneuronal variability, the developmental origins of interneuronal diversity, the functional roles ... More

Keywords: interneurons, cortical neuron networks, brain functions, neuronal oscillations, learning and memory, interneuronal variability, heterogeneity, interneuronal diversity
